NZQA Top Art Folio Exhibition [Thu, 12 July 2018]

  • NZQA Top Art Folio Exhibition

Every year the Central Otago District Arts Trust brings to Alexandra the NZQA Top Art Folio Exhibition. This exhibition is a selection of 50 visual arts portfolios that gained excellence in NCEA level 3. Schools throughout Central Otago and the Central Lakes Districts are notified of the dates and times of this exhibition and they, along with the general public are invited to view these works at their leisure free of charge. CODAT sees this exhibition as being a wonderful resource for young people as well as an inspiration to others who choose to come along and view it. Keep an eye out on the arts website and Facebook - Central Otago Arts for dates and times for the next Top Art Exhibition or email for further information.
